More Days of Caring projects sought

FINDLAY, OH (April 12, 2022) - The United Way of Hancock County is gearing up for its 28th annual Days of Caring, which runs May 2-6.

The weeklong volunteer event places volunteer groups countywide to complete service projects for nonprofit agencies, public service entities and human services groups.

“Volunteer participation this year is incredibly high,” said United Way of Hancock County CEO, Angela DeBoskey, “so we are doubling the number of projects we normally tackle. The entire event will place more than 3,500 volunteer hours which will take care of a lot of needs within Hancock County”

With approximately 900 volunteers participating, the United Way is in search of more projects from organizations in Hancock County. Local agencies are encouraged to submit a request. Project examples include landscaping, indoor and outdoor painting, basic carpentry, power washing, cleaning and organization. Projects that require specialized skill sets may also be considered. Agencies must provide their own supplies and a representative to supervise the project.

Project requests are due by Monday and can be made by calling the United Way office at 419-423-1432. Agencies will be connected with their volunteer project leader the week of April 25.
